    1981 FA Cup Final Replay

    I was in the 5th year at school (year11 to you youngsters!) playing cricket in games, my uncle and his mates pulled up to pick me up, teacher said I couldn't leave, I just laughed and shouted "try catching me!" We were in the corner at the end Ricky scored, scenes of pandemonium as he rolled the...

    Steve Perryman to retire after last game - at Wembley

    All the older members on SC will have very fond memories of Steve Perryman. He was a fantastic servant to the club. If the likes of Adebayor had had Steve's heart, desire and dedication, and no small amount of loyalty, he would have been amongst the very best in the world. He was a real leader...

    Man Utd won’t include Martial in any Alderweireld deal

    It's a sign how far we've come . The days when we rolled over to SAF and the Mancs have evolved, Carrick transfer was very frustrating, but now we have a lot more power. Yanited still one of the biggest clubs in the world, and certainly amongst the highest payers. IF they sign Toby, Levy will...

    Dembele been fantastic for us, if Poch is allowing him to move on, he should get to choose the best offer for him. Good luck to Moussa.

    How do Spurs take the next step up?

    Whilst it would be lovely to sign the world's best players and fast-track ourselves to the title a la Citeh it's worth remembering we are building something really special here. Nothing is linear in life, but steadily upgrading our squad each summer has to be right. That is how we take the next...

    Lloris issues message to teammates

    bozzaSPUR , at the start of the season I didn't think we would make top four, we've outperformed for the most part of the season. Finished top of our CL group when most people expected us to finish third. FA Semi was disappointing the way we played. Our best 11 when fit is a match for pretty...

    Lloris issues message to teammates

    I just don't agree with some of the negativity. MOST fans thought this season would be a struggle because of Wembley, and yet after 36 games we are in the box seats. Destiny is in our hands. Good run in CL , Semi Final was disappointing because we didn't turn up, and still a chance to finish...

    Lloris issues message to teammates

    2 home games vs teams with only pride to play for. Leicester look on the beach already. Time for the team to step up, battle hard and bank 6 points. Audere est Facere

    Parliament to discuss safe standing after petition reaches 100,000 signatures

    At most away games you stand anyway! "Safer Standing" would give a little more room, and yet increase the capacity. Not sure, but I thought I read a while ago that it would take our capacity to nearly 68,000???

    Pochettino clarifies previous comments

    Poch staying is extremely important. The players, particularly the younger players, seem to really love him. Hope Levy is able to back him in the window and we can push on next season.

    Summer transfer wish list - 2018

    Sessegnon above all else. Will be silly money, like Modric and Bale were, and we will have the outstanding youngster in the country whose value will double again in no time. Madison and Brooks worth a punt too. We should try to get Jadon Sancho from Dortmund, unlikely to happen, but would be a...

    Lucas Moura: 'I want to make my story here'

    Lucas has arrived with a great reputation. We have seen glimpses of what he can do. Let's hope he does make his name while playing for us and helps us to win trophies.
